Wearin' o' the Green

Written by: ilene bauer

Kelly, olive, hunter, pea – 
Any green will do ya.
On St. Paddy’s Day, in green
Is how the world should view ya.

Forest, avocado, teal – 
So many shades for choosin’.
Mint, pistachio, chartreuse – 
Such greenness for effusin’.

Army, jungle, lime and pine – 
Whichever one is pleasin’.
Deck yourself in green today – 
The world will know the reason!
